I agree, the penalty should be harsher. Maybe like Macdonald gets the win money (since he won the 185 fight by forfeit) but they fight at catchweight for the purse and chance at sub/KO of the night. That would be a substantial penalty, but we'd still get to see the matchup. It's unfair to Macdonald that Gouevia gets to walk in with a size advantage when he contracted for a fight at 185.
I'm just throwing this out there, maybe this suggestion has a downside I'm not seeing. But I think the 20% penalty is pretty light. Imagine if Liddell had walked in 10 lbs heavy for his fight with Jardine? (I choose this example because I remember Liddell was being paid many times more $$$). He would've had a size advantage, and still made more money to show than Jardine. I'm not saying Chuck would ever do this, it's just an example.
